Delet – Book of Genesis
Feb 17 @ 9:30 am – 11:30 am

Some might call it the most incredible book ever written. Genesis is science and myth, history and fiction, immigration and emigration, feast and famine, birth and death, peace and strife, threats and promises, sibling hatreds and reconciliations, families in turmoil and families aiding and maintaining. What did the author know about the creation of galaxies and nebulae, about climate change, about nation building, about the nature of clans and tribal forces, about psychology and pathology, about trust and faith? Genesis is about change – of place, of name, of fortune, of fate, of destiny—and about the birth of the universe and of a people … both of which were cataclysmic.

Adult Ed – Jewish Course of Why
Feb 17 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

With Rabbi Serebryanski

It’s a good thing Jews love to ask questions, because there’s no more effective way to learn than by asking a good question. From the profound to the almost profane, and everything in between, this course will address some of the most puzzling aspects of Jewish tradition.

Delet – Who Wrote the Bible (CS)
Feb 17 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Ever wonder why there are two stories of creation or why certain parts of the text don’t exactly flow as well as they should?

We will explore this question from different perspectives through close examination of the Biblical text as well as insights from history, archaeology, and philosophy in order to try to understand the authorship of the text and its implications.

Delet – From Our Door to Your Dor (Love Makes you a Believer)
Feb 18 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

One of the most profound questions a human being can ask is ‘how can we believe
in G-d.’ Our tradition offers the following answer: ‘It is love that makes us believers.’ Love is the path that leads people from doubt to faith. Rabbi Adam Morris will talk about how love paves the road from doubt to belief.
